Awesome Brooklyn House Lets You Ride a Motorcycle Inside

New, 18 comments

Somehow this wondrous Brooklyn house has been on the market for six days already and no one has snapped it up. (Though 6sqft did blog about it.)

The two-bedroom, two-bath just south of Park Slope, in the area dubiously called Greenwood Heights, is all on one level. It has a mix of old-school charm (beamed ceilings, "farmhouse sink," clawfoot tub), industrial chic (poured concrete floors), and that current omnipresent obsession with mid-century modern simplicity (sunken living room, much of the furnishings). There's also a two-car garage, with a retractable door that opens right into the living room—hence how that vintage-y bike rolled on in. Beyond that, the property also sprouts private outdoor spaces in the front and rear; the latter has a fountain and vegetable garden. The asking price? $2.25 million. Is this home better than old-fashioned Brooklyn townhouses, which list in droves? It is, at the very least, more rare.
